Evolution quotes #2

Lord Solly Zuckerman on the furor regarding Homo habilis:
"The debate in the press seemed to me less like a scientific discussion than a public auction of anatomical speculations."

Roger Lewin (noted science journalist), Bones of Contention (New York, NY: A Touchstone Book published by Simon & Schuster Inc., 1987), p. 28 citing "Myths and Methods in Anatomy," Journal of the Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh, vol. II, no. 2, pp. 87-114 (1966), p. 91
